I am grateful for Thursday morning sunshine, at not yet 9am here now, in our small but welcoming living room. The “Sabbatical” does not officially end until next week, but we have been back from our travels since Aug 7. That means it was 8 weeks ago tomorrow morning that we drove away in our loaded-up van! (Took more than we used or needed–makes it hard to find stuff!) So, one take away is “Travel light.” (I “knew” that before! Now I know it a lot better!!)
Life has picked up steam on the home front already in mid-August. My husband is transitioning well and I am still getting used to being back!!
But it was a superb experience, or whole string of them, with over 7500 miles driven, many people and lovely landscapes–along with a few awful ones and one very-cold tent night!
We want to review the fun places together with friends soon. (I finally got the photos moved to computer I think!)
Here’s some new:
Marye, our hostess at Prairie Rose Bed and (fabulous) Breakfast in Anama, IA last week. She is wonderful!
